I believe you'd have to modify this XML definition. Make sure you don't remove any columns simply because there could be code behind relying on a column to be there.

definition of Users grid is in ~/CMSModules/Membership/Pages/Users/User_List.xml as Brenden mentioned. This file defines presentation of users in grid. More details on unigrid definition can be found here

That's displaying part. But you will need to add those columns also to the query getting records from DB. If you are using Kentico 7 simply add column names to Columns property of unigrid in ~/CMSModules/Membership/Pages/Users/User_List.aspx file.

If you are running Kentico 8 you can find the list of columns the grid gets from the DB in ~/Old_App_Code/CMSModules/Membership/Users/UserListExtender.cs file (OnInit method, line starting with Control.Columns).

Can You tell me how it works on Kentico 10. Unfortunately I can't find the file UserListExtender.cs there.

I added a custom field. And want to display it in the user grid. How can I implement it? And is this the right way to go with a Kentico update in the future?

thanks in advance
